Historical Atlas of the Modern Middle East is a comprehensive and comparative atlas of Middle Eastern history, beginning in the early modern period and continuing through the present. It is comprehensive because, unlike many other historical atlases, this work covers the entire region, as well as neighboring areas of Europe, Central Asia and South Asia. In addition, by providing successive maps drawn on the same base, along with accompanying explanatory text, the Atlas takes a chronologically comparative approach. This permits readers to follow the flow of historical developments and compare the same terrain in different eras.
